Unions and community groups don’t need to wait till after the Budget is read to know they’ve been screwed. They’re gathering today at Parliament at 12pm for a protest rally – come along if you’re in town.
I was talking to a union organiser today who said that one of her main worksites – politically apathetic most times (with all the love in the world) is up in arms over National’s cuts to KiwiSaver and Working for Families. They’re feeling pissed and betrayed and who can blame them. With any luck they’ll still feel like that in November.
